The ANRF Chronicle | March 2019 Editorial Letter From Dr. Z

Zaher Nahle, PhD, MPADear partner,

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has emerged as a global pandemic that impacts people and populations around the world. Many in our patient community have significant concerns whether immune-compromised, reliant on medications facing shortages, or of an age group considered especially vulnerable to respiratory illnesses. This is a trying time marked by great loss of life and unprecedented social disruption. However, it is also a time in which we are bearing witness to the resilience of humankind in numerous forms: acts of courage and compassion, individual sacrifice for the greater good, and intense scientific collaborations across borders.

In this edition of the ANRF Chronicle, we bring you an important message from Dr. Paul Utz of Stanford University, a physician and ANRF Alumnus at the forefront of battling this epidemic. We share social distancing tips, information on navigating COVID-19 for the immunocompromised, and mitigation strategies recommended by the CDC. We also celebrate the work of healthcare professionals and others who are demonstrating their commitment to the wellbeing of their fellow men and women on a daily basis. During this unprecedented time in our history, ANRF will continue to bring you scientifically sound information. We will continue to foster the development of brilliant scientific minds and innovative research. We, like many of you, will work hard to ensure we do the best we can for others. I am confident that ANRF, like you, will emerge from this time stronger and ever more dedicated to the work we do.

With much gratitude,

Zaher Nahle, PhD, MPA
Chief Executive Officer, ANRF
